March’s Market District Teacher of the Month was Tricia Schreck, a fifth-grade teacher at Stony Creek Elementary in Noblesville. Her student, Britlyn Tanton, nominated her. As a reward, Britlyn won a pizza party for her classroom, and Schreck won a $50 gift card to Market District grocery store, Teacher of the Month sponsor.
Here is Britlyn’s winning essay:
Mrs. Schreck is the best because she makes learning fun.
When we have to pick up all of our trash, for the day, she says, ‘Pick up all your STUFF,’ referring to the Shrek movie. This always makes us laugh.
When I think I might not do so well on a test, she makes me feel positive about it. She never raises her voice at us. If there is a topic I am not understanding, she doesn’t give up but teaches me until I understand it.
She is a positive, awesome and nice teacher. That is why I truly believe she is the best.
